Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) Spotlight

Learn more about the Fluorescence-activated cell sorting machine.

Fluorescence-activated cell sorting is a type of flow cytometry that allows a researcher to separate samples expressing a fluorescence marker from those not expressing the marker.

Professor Kenneth Birnbaum used the FACS machine in his ground breaking work published in Plant Physiology.
